Shakespearean Imagination

Friends, what cheer?

It's Wednesday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

It’s tech week for our production of Twelfth Night, which means 4-6 hours of rehearsal each night on top of a full workday. This means that there is one thing for which I long most, and the same one thing which I’ll see the least of this week. The word for today is:

bedroom : bed•room /ˈbedˌro͞om/ (noun) :

- A room for sleeping in
- Relating to sexual relations

Synonyms: bedchamber - chamber - dormitory

First seen in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night’s Dream (written 1595 - 1596). The full text of the play may be found here.
